2021 AWARDS ENTRY FORM

2019 RINLA PROFESSIONAL EXCELLENCE AWARDS

Entries are now open for RINLA’s 2019 Professional Excellence Awards.

2019 RINLA’s Professional Excellence Awards program reflects our commitment to promote high standards of quality landscape design, installation and maintenance. The program recognizes and awards landscape professionals who execute quality and sustainable landscape projects. In sponsoring the awards program, RINLA strives to increase public awareness of quality landscape design and installation and their role in the improvement of the environment.

The judging process is “blind” – no company names, client names, and or project locations are allowed on photographs documenting the project, or plans that accompany the entries.

A panel of landscape professionals, including landscape architects, contractors and designers, nurserymen, and/or educators, will judge the entries. Projects will be judged on the basis of difficulty, craftsmanship, proper horticultural practices and relative contribution to the quality of the environment. The type, size and cost of the project are not criteria for judging. All entries are reviewed from the photos submitted, so photos must show sufficient details to allow judges to adequately determine the quality of work performed

Publicity opportunities for entrants include:

  • Recognition at RINLA’s Winter Conference & Trade Show
  • Promotion in RINLA's quarterly newsletter
  • Promotion on the RINLA website
